safer, stronger and more secure. >> also out of d.c., a potential crisis over the debt ceiling. looks like it will be averted, at least until the spring. the republican-controlled house passed a bill allowing the government to avoid default and continue borrowing money and paying its bills until may. it also requires lawmakers in both chambers to pass a budget if they actually want to keep getting paid their salary. with the senate set to sign on house speaker john boehner credited the bill for forcing the democrats' hand. >> after four years i'm glad the senate has finally decided to act. because there is no indication that we're going to do a budget until we announced last week that we were going to move this bill that said pass a budget or no pay. >> paul ryan wears that orange tie a lot. boehner wears that green tie quite a bit. the democrat-controlled senate has not produced a detailed budget in 1,366 days. yesterday democratic leaders said the measure is actually a victory for the president. >> i'm not sure what happened at the house republican retreat last week, but it sure had

, become me. method acting. so let's talk about the debt ceiling. >> no, because that's why i'm here. >> how do you adjust, professionally, how do you adjust to doing broadway movies and tv. are there differences in the type of acting that you try to do? >> you know, for me, it's always about the material. that's what attracts me. if it's on the written page and makes sense and i can relate to it, i want to do it. and, you know, and i think acting is acting. it's always about being truthful. so on the stage, it requires a different kind of energy and you're playing to a big house. in film, the camera can be right there. so it also gives you the option to really be more internal. but it's -- i really believe it all comes from the same place, which is, do you believe what i'm saying? >> i'm going to ask you another question, because, "argo," critically a success. award winning, obviously, for the golden globes. snubbed a bit by the academy. is there anything you want to get off your chest? >> you know, here's the deal, it was disappointing and kind of surprising, but really, the movie
